Wow, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to mount him. Taxidermist mount geese all the time. Where was that bird shot if you don't mind me asking?

I shot one about the same size last December and Birdman Studios did a great job on it.

It would be neat to have a biologist take a look a him and see if age has anything to do with their size. Nice bird, taxidermist for sure!

Just wondering what makes that one a monster? Looks like a pretty standard sized greenhead? Any idea on weight?

I think he was around 4 1/2#'s and way above average length. He was just short of 28" long

I measured one of the bigger looking birds from yesterdays hunt and it was 25" long so guess I'm just use to the big greenheads up here

Probably some old park duck or something. I swear Ive shot geese over 15# from golf courses they just never stop growing.
